TESTIMONIALS

We interviewed several home builders before building our new home and Dabbert was the best of the bunch.

During the interview process we described a few key features we required that were not part of anyone's standard floor plans. Unlike the other builders who said they would get back to us with ideas in several weeks’ time, Dabbert was able to sketch out some concepts immediately to make sure that they understood what we were looking for. Dabbert was the last builder we interviewed and the first to respond with rough plans for review. The other builders took a month plus to respond and didn't at all get what we were looking for. Their work ups didn't properly implement the accessibility requirements we had or capture the architectural style were looking for. When we started the lot selection process we came into the project with a particular area in mind. Dabbert did a great job of explaining all of the differences between the different developments and gave us pros and cons of each area. Once we determined a rough architectural design for the outside of the house, they helped us to pick a lot and neighborhood that best went with our look. We didn't end up going with the lot we originally picked out and now seeing how that original area has been developed I'm very glad that Dabbert took the time to go over those details with us and help us select an area where our design fits in. During the selection process Dabbert was very good at being a go between from the suppliers to us. If the selections seemed overly expensive or ultimately not fitting in with the overall design Dabbert would ask us for further clarification and/or offer alternative ideas. With the plumbing selections in particular we were steered very wrong by the supplier and Dabbert helped to make suggestions to keep with in the budget without a loss of quality. During construction Dabbert payed close attention to the quality of the work all the subcontractors were doing. There were several instances where some portions of the work were done good enough to meet code and Dabbert had the work redone to bring it up to their higher standards. In particular, the concrete for the front porch wasn't quite at the right heights. We might not have noticed and it might not have caused problems, but Dabbert forced the contractor to redo it the right way. During the final fit and finish Dabbert did a great job of keeping in mind our overall design style. There were several instances where the look would have been good, but the Dabbert crew came up with little tweaks and ideas to make it great. Items that really stand out are the designs for the railings and the decorative support column. Dabbert did a great job of helping us stay within a reasonable budget, helping us prioritize spending money on the structural items that would not be easy to change down the road, VS spending money on cosmetic items that can be done later on. They were also very good at pointing out more cost effective options or being very blunt about do you really want to spend a lot of money on something for very little long term return. I have already and would again recommend Dabbert Construction to anyone looking to build a new house.

Chad MauchClient

My husband and I toured a Dabbert home in Dilworth, MN, that he had found online. The model home was only around the corner from us, so we chuckled at the thought of moving, literally two blocks! We decided to build with Dabbert and moved into our new home (2 blocks away!) about five months ago. Our experience was pretty outstanding. The selections available for the "base" model were impressive: granite counters in kitchen, huge windows, nice open floor plan, air exchanger etc...The staff were SO helpful and the sub contractors were impressive. Lot size was impressive as well. Don Dabbert really takes ownership and pride in every home they build - he attends EVERY closing! We just had coworkers over last night who are wanting to build and we recommended Dabbert - so they wanted to come over and take a tour. I work in marketing and believe in the power of word of mouth - I will have no problems tooting the Dabbert horn!

For first time builders, the team at Dabbert Custom Homes, truly make the process so easy. They listened to any concerns we had and would always answer our questions in a very timely manner. All of this is shown in the high quality craftsmanship and products they put into their houses. They truly go above and beyond for their clients and we can't thank them enough for making our dream house come true!

Happy HomeownerClient

Our experience with The Dabbert Team was fantastic. We appreciated being kept in the loop with build updates and that they were always willing to work around our hectic schedules. The team was so fun to work with and they are truly passionate about what they do. We felt supported and engaged throughout the entire process and we never felt pressured to spend out of our comfort zone. Don personally went out of his way to make sure everything happened in a timely manner for us, which we are so thankful for! We also love the final product, we are so happy with our new home!!

Jess & Kyle SandvikClient

We absolutely loved working with Dabbert Custom Homes. We decided to do quite a bit of custom work in our home; we showed them photos and they literally created the space exactly like the photos. For the hanging sinks in our guest baths, Dabbert even thinks they found the exact sink that was in the photo from Pinterest! The owner himself (Don) welded us a beautiful metal/wood railing for our staircase from a photo I shared.

Joy NavatrilClient

Don and his team were wonderful to work with. Don and Ashley were on point with everything, and did a great job listening to our needs and gave us help on where to install things to help our resale value of our home. From day one Dabbert Custom Homes have been amazing to work with. They still keep in contact and it has been just over two years now. Don and his team still amaze me with the homes and the quality that go into their work. Thanks a Million Dabbert Custom Homes.

Jon HansonClient

The Dabbert team had everything we were looking for. Very professional, had great ideas and insights and were very fun to work with. If we did it all over again we’d choose Dabbert without hesitating. We really could not have asked for anything better.

Chace ConleyClient

The team at Dabbert Custom Homes are professionals--each and every one. They made all the decisions involved with building a new home seem effortless.

Dean HulseClient

We loved working with the Dabbert Custom home team. The building of our home went very smoothly and we love the final result. Company was extremely helpful and cheerful in leading us through the building of our new house. They were always willing to help with questions that we had through the process.

Melissa & Corey EslingerClient

Dabbert Custom Homes was great to work with on our new home build. Everyone from the receptionist to the owner answered any questions or concern promptly and were always available when we needed them.
We moved into our home in October 2016 and we love it!

Megan PillenClient

Dabbert Custom Homes did everything possible to create the dream home we've envisioned for years. Their workmanship is amazing and far above other local builders in the area we looked at. The quality of our home is top notch. Don Dabbert is so creative in helping you get everything right before building. We love our new home and love every minute we get to spend in it.

Chris FischerClient

Great job, great workmanship. Very quick with any issues that came up after the house was done and after closing. Great group of people to work with. House looks better than I could have hoped for.
Don and his group were very helpful with his quick and great idea's to make room for what we wanted to have added. Stuff we had thought about that we had in our heads but no idea how to make it come together. To name a few, adding 36" doors threw out the home. Big whirlpool jetted tub added to the Master bathroom.
We fell in love with the builder during the Parade of Homes in the Fall of 2016 and we are in our custom built home before the Spring Parade of Homes of 2017. Our visit to their model home of which was not the style of house we wanted (a 2 story) we wanted a Rambler. That house stood out as our favorite that day, which ended up being the reason we did a new build instead of buying something that was already on the market.
Project was a little behind schedule but that could all be chalked up to our indecision on what we wanted to have done, making our selections and the abnormal wet rainy weather we had at the start of the build in November of 2016. I would give them a plus for getting it done in the timeline they did.

Jim FischerClient

The home met my expectations, and in some parts exceeded them. The price was very fair for the finished product, one of their elevation upgraded homes. The employee we worked with was super helpful as well.

Alex BatesClient

Dabbert Custom homes was great to work with. They completed the build on schedule and made the process extremely easy. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to build their new home.

Andy ReinertClient

The staff here worked with me cause my original home didn't sell right away. They held everything for us and weren't impatient. It was a stressful time but not because of them. They were all great.

Sara HickeyClient

We love our new home! We never thought we'd be able to buy a brand new home, but our dream came true. It was a fun experience from beginning to end and we feel blessed to live in a spacious and well-built new home. Everyone at Dabbert was great to work with and quick to help when needed. They were professional and fun at the same time. Thanks for building us a wonderful home that the whole family enjoys!

Mallory NeuharthClient

Dabbert Custom Homes built a beautiful home for me. What was even better was that they finished the project on the exact date we agreed on - talk about punctual! The end product was exactly what I was looking for. I definitely recommend them!

Maria ConstanceClient

My husband and I love our house. We were extremely impressed with Dabbert Custom Homes from the very beginning. We talked with multiple home builders in the area and didn't feel very confident when we walked out of their offices. At Dabbert we walked out very confident and excited to be building a home we would love and know we could afford without the worry of going over our budget.
We liked how we met with the Dabbert team and everyone was very friendly and happy to answer questions or concerns during our building process. They ALWAYS got back to us within a day so there was never any stress waiting for answers. From start to finish they make you feel as if your home is the only one that is being built and that you are their No. 1 priority!
Everything in our home turned our awesome and we couldn't be happier and we are already keeping lists of things we want to do with our next home which will definitely be built with Dabbert Custom Homes.

Tracy LappClient

Dabbert Custom Homes built our house for us. They built our home in a timely and efficient manner and my husband and I were also extremely satisfied with the quality of our home. Great work, I would highly recommend!

Marsha LaneClient

Great to work with from start to finish. Dabbert's make the home building process easy and answered any questions or concerns quickly. I felt like my house was as important to them as it was for me. I had few things that were missed but they quickly fixed the mix up and had it finished before closing. A great personally touch they had house warming gifts on my kitchen island waiting for me after I finished the closing.

Misty WeberClient

Dabbert Custom Homes built our new home for us. We we were looking for a new home and Dabbert had the model that we wanted in our next home so we went with them. I thought the staff was very courteous when speaking with them and I thought they took their time to do things right as well.

Kellie BarkerClient

My Wife and I were in the market to purchase a new home and our path led us to a Dabbert custom homes. From the moment we walked in we could tell that this was a high quality build. As we walked through the house it was apparent just how much work and attention to detail the builder and contractors put in to this house and we knew that this was the house for us. We moved in to the home a few days ago and every thing has been perfect. I would recommend a Dabbert home to anybody that is in the market and asked.

Miko & Allison EliasClient

Dabbert Custom Homes helped us design and build our dream home!! They were awesome from the start and answered all of our questions. We loved working with them and our team from Megan, to Sam, to Don himself. One thing we thought was pretty cool was Don Dabbert met with us to walk through our blue prints to finalize our plans. He also was there to do our final walk through to make sure the house was perfect and also hand off our keys personally at our closing. You don't see the owner of a home building company do that very often. We would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is wanting to build a custom home. If we ever decide to build again (according to my husband we won't be) we would for sure go back to them and do the process all over again! 🙂

Laura LutkemeierClient

We had a Wonderful experience working with Dabbert. The Dabbert team went above and beyond and we are extremely happy and excited to be in our new home! They exceeded our expectations and I would highly recommend Dabbert!

Rachelle GerszewskiClient

We hired Don and his team to build our home and the level of service we've received throughout the construction process was outstanding. They were very quick to respond to questions and concerns throughout the process and went above and beyond expectations to ensure that we were informed. Even after construction was complete Don and his team continued to ensure we were happy and comfortable in our new home. Dabbert's team as well as the subcontractors they employed all possessed a high level of detail and care and it showed through in their work. We would highly recommend Don and Dabbert Homes!

Loegering'sClient

Building with Dabbert Custom Homes was truly a joy, and I can't thank their team enough! My new home is beautiful, and they made the entire process so easy. I've built three previous homes with other local custom builders, and this was by far the best experience yet. Dabbert delivered on-time and on-budget, with no surprises along the way. I highly recommend Dabbert Custom homes to anyone looking for a quality, affordable, and dependable home builder!

Jane SchockClient

I’ve built with one other builder & Dabbert Custom Homes and my experiences were night and day. With Dabbert my phone calls were always answered and if not, they replied to my voicemail or email the very same day. Dabbert was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional, far above my expectations in each category. I got to meet everyone on the team including Don Dabbert. It felt like they actually cared about me as a person. With how Dabbert Custom Homes treated me, you’d have thought they were only building 1 house for the entire year, my house. All personal feelings and silly jazz aside, money matters most to me when building a home. They built an incredible product for an incredible price and not once did I feel like they were taking advantage of me. They were fair and open with all upgrades, special requests, or additions that I was doing.

Jacob HClient

We are so happy about the beautiful home Dabbert Custom Homes built for us! Their team kept us updated on progress the entire build. Very professional team, built with quality we were looking for, and all within our budget. Year and years down the road, if we ever build again, it will for sure be with Dabbert!

Kelly MuellerClient

We have built with Dabbert TWICE! Don and his team are simply amazing!
Dabbert is attentive, fair, trustworthy, of high quality, and so much more. We built one of their spec homes and a total custom two story home with them. Both times we were treated like family.
Their selections for standard options are wonderful and when we chose to upgrade they always made sure they knew exactly what we were looking for and would give us different price points to look at. They also took the time to explain anything we didn't understand.
Don has a thing for big beautiful windows and so do we. We love the natural light we have in both our homes! In our custom build Don and his team had wonderful suggestions and took what we were wanting to create our dream home.
We hadn't been to our new home in a while during the construction process...it just wasn't lining up for us to see. Don heard of this and took time out of his weekend to get us in our home to check out the progress. His wife was along and we all walked in and I just cried, tears of happiness!! In that moment I was just so overwhelmed with all the goodness! Another bonus, we closed on our new home on time and within budget!
To Don and his team-Thank you for taking such good care of us and building our dream home!! We wish you many more years of much deserved success!

Dabbert Custom Homes builds very good quality homes. I am very happy with the results of their work. They really are easy to work with, and if you're on a budget like I was then you shouldn't go anywhere else!

Benjamin GordonClient

How could you build with anyone else? Don and his staff have been amazing from start to finish. Once we moved in we had Direct TV come out and do an install which they ended up making our upstairs laundry room start to leak. Don and his team were the most professional team they came out took a look at what was going one and found that Direct TV messed up on their install. Don and his team fixed where the roof was leaking took pictures and documented everything so I was able to send it into Direct TV with out a hassle. Who could ask for a better builder. I would Strongly recommend Dabbert Custom homes to anyone and have already to a few of my friends. One of the top home builders in the area. Thank you Don and Dabbert Custom homes, and thank you for making my wife happy!!!!

We love our new 4 bedroom home, it's so open with all the windows, the high ceilings and my huge kitchen with my own picked out backsplash brings the last final touch! I love the design of the house, it's different and not the same as others, the different color siding and of course my orange door. Absolutely love love everything, very well built!

Jane SchockClient

My wife and I built our first new home with Dabbert and moved in December of 2015. We first became interested in them during the FM parade of homes, their quality feel and open floor plan sold us immediately but it was the initial meeting with Don that sealed the deal for us. Don, Megan and Tim were excellent through the entire process from selection to the timing of completion with the closing of our old home. I feel like the entire project was managed very well and all our questions were answered in a timely manner no matter how trivial. Their customer service after the sale has been excellent as well. We love our Dabbert home.

We would like to thank the entire Dabbert team for making our building experience wonderful-awesome-stress free, and the list goes on and on! There are just not enough thank you’s we can type to everyone. We appreciate how quickly you worked with us and completed our dream home way ahead of schedule. Thank you for your patience as we made our decisions and asked a bunch of questions.
We were so impressed with the time you took to thoroughly explain how to care for our home during our final walk through, this was a prime example of how much you care about your clients and the pride you take in the homes you build.
You all went above and beyond throughout the entire building process and we absolutely LOVE ❤️ our home!!
We are so very grateful that our AMAZING agent and friend Amber recommended Dabbert and was able to get us all connected.
We will definitely be speaking highly and recommending Dabbert!!
P.S - Thank you for the surprise welcome home snacks/food and everything else you left us, our kids loved it! 😉

DCH completed my house about a month earlier than expected. During construction I was able to periodically visit the house to see the progress, any construction issues that happened were fixed in a timely manner. Their agent were very helpful and accommodating. All in all I am very pleased with DCH.

Brian & Shari BlixtClient

As a first time home builder, I fully expected the building process to be extremely stressful. Thankfully, with Dabbert Custom Homes, that was not the case. Their experienced and knowledgeable staff skillfully walked me through each step of the building process with ease, making it very enjoyable! I love my new home,and have DCH to thank for it! Their EXCELLENT customer service is truly commendable!

Alison SpielvogelClient

We love out Dabbert Custom Home! Mostly because they really did let us customized everything while still working within an affordable house plan. We have been in our house almost a year and every time we have a question or problem they respond to us as if we are the most important thing they have going on that week. We have built a few houses and nobody has ever treated us like that AFTER closing! We get to come home to our dream home every day, so thanks!!!
